HallucinationsBook - 2012
Hallucinations, for most people, imply madness. There are many different types of non-psychotic hallucination caused by various illnesses or injuries, by intoxication--even, for many people, by falling sleep. From the elementary geometrical shapes that we see when we rub our eyes to the complex swirls and blind spots and zigzags of a visual migraine, hallucination takes many forms. A fascinating investigation into hallucinations that draws on a wealth of clinical examples from author Oliver Sack's own patients as well as historical and literary descriptions.
